Its me again !!!

IT'S MEEEEEE,Im back .....I think!!....though I didnt think I ever would be .Well I have often joked ,about what I would do if I didnt have a computer ,well now I know ,!!  SAD !OR WHAT?....I rang my daughter Kate on Saturday ,and her husband Martin brought her straight over ,she was here all day ,she defragged ,and deleted all day ,well we took a little time out and we went up to the shops ,and we called into the butchers,she asked if they had a bone for her dog Maddy,well they gave her the biggest bone you ever saw ,there was a smaller one ,she gave to Scooby ,but he turned his nose up at it ....but she told me Maddy was very pleased with her present from Granny's butcher.....Kate managed to get me on line ,long enough to see how many emails I had got ,then OFF it went again ,Maurice rang his friend John yesterday morning and he is to come over on Tuesday morning......we tried on and off all day ...nothing ....I rang Sandra ,and bless her heart she did an entry explaining everything for me ,so that everyone was aware of what was happening .She also told you the news I had  promised to share with you ,AOL Chat &Community emailed me they want to feature my journal as blog of the week on the AOL Welcome screen,on Saturday,27May,and to point out my journal will be featured as part of 'Silver Surfers week' ,a project aimed at getting more older people to engage on the net,so with that in mind they asked me to post entrys,the week starting May 22nd ,that will lend them selves to this promotion ..........What an honour ,I couldnt have done any of this without you ,Jeannette (jottings)encouraged me to start ,and was there whenever I paniced ,calmed me down and put me back on the right road again ,Jeannette(travels) sent me emails with step by step instructions for arranging my photo's and again for graphics ...Donna explained all this to me too ,and you have all seen the amazing graphics Donna has made for me .Sandra ,you've helped me too many an email has gone back and forth ,between you and me, bless you ,You have all been so lovely ....Ally rang me this morning ,and as the phone call progressed,the line got fainter and fainter ...AHHHH ,we checked the DSL cable filter,and after a phone call to AOL voila ......here I am .Thankyou ALLYmwah xxx.John will still come tomorrow It wont hurt for him to have a look ,Sorry if I've gone on a bit ,today, A. I wanted to put you all in the picture,and B.Its so hard typing with your fingers crossed ...so if I havent left you a comment its because I have so many and they are still coming in .

Whilst I have been writing this Maurice has just had a phone call from work to tell him he has the promotion he had applied for ,he is over the moon ,and I'm so proud of him he has worked so hard to get it ,so on that very happy note Thankyou again everyone ..With Love from

I'm happy to see you are back.... Your computer should be running perfectly now as soon as that cable or whatever made it lose power is fixed or it must be fixed already... thats great. happy to hear the news  of you being featured too. It will be nice to see you and others featured. Have a nice day. Hope its sunny by you ~ we are getting our 4th or 5th day of rain. :( but we will try to make our own sunshine. Sandra

I am so glad that you are happy again, you worried me on saturday cos you had lost your point of contact for all your fellow journal people. I hope that it's all sorted out now, John will sort you out. Sorry i couldn't help any more than i did. Just off to give Maddie her walkies. Talk to you later. Well done Pops on the promotion, keep up the good work and thanks for bearing with me on saturday, doing your head in. Love you both so much. Be good and happy and have a nice rest of your day.

Filters can be a pain at times...Also if you're on broadband and have an extension lead to the modem from the phone socket it is better to be a broadband extension and not an ordinary one...Congrats again on being picked to be featured :o)  Congrats to maurice on his promotion...Nice to see you back again :o)  Caff xxx

Hi Jan,  I`m so happy you`re back in J-Land again.  I was not the same without you, everyone wanted to know where you were...lol!  It`s really hard not to have a computer as it`s one addiction that needs to be fed regularly ( in my case anyway...lol)  Looking forward to all your entries for  Blog of the Week.  Please tell Maurice congrats on his promotion! :o))

Jan, Congratulations on being selected to represent AOL Journals!  That is so cool!  I can't wait to see YOU on the front page of AOL!  

I would be lost without my computer..    I hate to say it, but it's sort of become my best friend.  I don't get out much.. unless it's with my kids, so when I'm home and done with shopping and housework... I'm here, catching up on alerts,and keeping up with my fellow JLanders.  I really don't watch much TV... so, this is it for me.

Glad you're back with us!

Jackie

Glad to have you back, tho I didn't know until this morning when I read Jeannette's entry, what was going on.  So you weren't ignoring me?  :)  Let me know and we can get some work done.

Congratulations on being chosen blog of the week. Hope your computer stays up. I didn't send you a comment of any kind as I knew your mailbox would be full of alerts and it is hard to catch up after not being able to read them for a few days. Glad Maurice got his promotion. Hugs, Helen

cacklinrosie101 said...

I wasn't aware you had computer problems but wondered about your not making an entry.  Congratulations on your honor....and what an honor it is.  I can't wait to see you on the welcome screen.  I have to laugh because I had absolutely no idea how to navigate through graphics and all the journal stuff either.  Way to go to Maurice on his promotion!  HUGS  Chris
